Kiki Raises The White Flag

I admit defeat.Β  Graduate school is officially the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life.Β  I still am enjoying what I’m learning but dang, there’s so much work and it really is becoming a bit overwhelming.Β  Don’t worry I’m not gonna get all emo.Β  I’m hanging in there.Β  I can’t wait til this semester is over though.

Some good dnb shows come up in the Chi so that’s at least something to look forward to.

Last night was really good.Β  I feel like I was fortunate enough to spend the whole of wednesday listening to really awesome dnb.Β  Will and Stunna on Bassdrive was a really great show and then at Lava everyone just had really good sets.Β  It’s days like those that I know why I love dnb so much.

Funky Kiki

It’s funny how you can be completely oblivious about categories of music.Β  There’s just so damn many.Β  Just the other day Radiata used the term skullstep and I was completely clueless.Β  I’m so liquid funk til I die that most of these terms are lost on me.Β  Skullstep can pal up with clownstep as far as I’m concerned.Β  Just not my cup of tea.Β  I don’t like weird, noisy, scary, angry dnb.Β  This is something that you have definitely learned about me by now, right?Β  Pretty, pretty, pretty, that is definitely what Kiki is about. πŸ˜‰

I was listening to 1xtra this weekend as I cleaned my place and I tuned in to Dj Target’s show.Β  He kept talking about UK Funky and I was unaware that this was a music category.Β  I recognised the tunes.Β  I am a Crazy Cousinz fan.Β  I think that I posted a track of theirs sometime last year even.Β  I was just unaware that they had a category name.Β  LOL.Β  Regardless I’m digging it. (Daniela I feel like you might like this genre.)Β  To be honest they were the types of non-dnb tracks that I was digging anyway.Β  I just like that now I can look under a specific category and prolly find stuff I like.

Loving this one right now.Β  Girly, pretty, dancey, wicked.Β  Woot.Β  Big up Meleka.

Meleka – Go (Crazy Cousinz Remix)

Back in dnb land… I’m excited for the Raiden show here in Chicago on thursday.Β  Raiden has been popping back and forth thru Chicago as he goes on different legs of his tour.Β  I’ve been fortunate enough to hear different snippets of him practising and he sounds wicked.Β  Really good tracks and just overall nice mixing.Β  You cant be crap anyways when you’ve been around as long as he has.Β  He’ll be at Smart Bar tomorrow.Β  I’m not going to lie… I can do without the openers.Β  I’m sure they are wonderful people but I just don’t have the tolerance for noisy dnb anymore.Β  I am a senior citizen dammit.Β  Like I said at the beginning of this post rowdy, loud, noisy, scary dnb is no longer in my vocabulary.Β  I’m just going for his set. πŸ™‚

I’m still trudging through mixes.Β  I’m so so behind.Β  LOL.Β  Bad Kiki.

Dance For Me

I went to see Dizzee Rascal yesterday. 1xtra plays that Dance For Me song all the time and I love it. I’ve seen him before and I always really enjoy his shows. He’s a good live performer. I find it really strange that there are so many artists that are actually pretty bad live. It’s almost surprising when you see someone who actually puts on a good show. Other people I always think put on a great live show are The Streets and M.I.A.

EL-P was on the bill last night too. I don’t really listen to a lot of rap but I definitely like this dude’s stuff. I’ve seen him a couple of times before and he’s just an all round good rapper. It was a good show. I had fun.

Remember that Dillinja remix of Basement Jaxx feat Dizzee Rascal – Lucky Star? I really liked that one.

I’m in a dubstep mood today. I actually listen to a lot of dubstep. You know how there are some things that you just do and you don’t really blab about it that much? That’s how it is with me and dubstep. I’m a big fan of the Bass Goes Boom nights. Chef is at the next one. Should be dope.

I’ve been feeling a bit poorly this week and haven’t really been doing any work so I think I’m going to try and be a good employee today.
